This Master’s Programme in Theoretical and Computational Methods is strongly orientated towards research. At the Kumpula campus, one of the four campuses at the University of Helsinki, top research is being carried out in many of the disciplines included in the programme. For example, theoretical particle physics, cosmology, computational material physics, aerosol physics, mathematical physics, inversion problems, theoretical chemistry, laser spectroscopy, and algorithm theory. The instruction in the programme is given by the researchers in these groups. This Master’s programme will give you a solid basis for continuing with postgraduate studies and research in one of these areas.
The programme cooperates with Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP) and Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT) and collaborates with the centres of excellence for Analysis and dynamics research, Inverse problems and Atmospheric sciences.
